We are a Non-profit organization. Our three main objectives are the following:
We are creating a location where the organization can run workshops and other educational events. we are doing that in the field of sustainable, and environmentally responsible way of living. The three main focal points of this objective is naturally built shelters, permaculture food production and renewable energy production.
We are also aiming to provide a temporary shelter for people who need assistance and a platform from where they can take steps to restart their re-integration into society due to one or more of the following reasons: having to get away from a violent family background, escape homelessness, avoid relapse in an addiction recovery situation.
In the process we hope to form a community of permanent residents who have the necessary skills and determination to run and continuously improve the organization’s off grid location and the programs within.
We have purchased the land just a few weeks ago, therefore there is nothing there as of yet. It's a bare piece of desert with bushes, and an eventual tortoise. We have makeshift dry toilets, and to take a shower we are going to the nearby Tecopa Hot Springs. This will soon change when we put up the first structure. within the next two weeks.

You will learn heaps about superadobe building and more specifically about a brand new form of superadobe vault building. Also you can try your hands in permaculture design and implementation. If you know what you are doing you can take complete control over your part of the project, and have room for experimenting.
We are building the structures for the purpose described in the about us section. We are experimenting with proven and newly designed building methods within the realm of superadobe building. We need a lot of help no tjust in the actual building but also in establishing our permaculture food production, solar energy production systems, and with our online presence and promotions.
